  12:14am Danne D:

This is so good Jesse. Got a John Cale thing going on :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15am Scraps deSelby:

Okay, this is also funny
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16am Scraps deSelby:

But different funny [idiom]

Holy Schnikees. Staying home for this program beats going out to any stuopid bar on this brownish planet! Beautiful!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34am coelacanth:

i kept a notebook of what i liked 'till about 4(?) years ago, when i started listening via computer because my antenna was broken. i've done that since i was about 14 (?) also. (not wfmu, generally.)
  1:46am rw:

How big is that notebook, coel?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04am coelacanth:

hey rw! as i remember- 2 spiral-bound notebooks, college ruled, 2 entries/line (100 pages each?...both sides). the older one must've been 3/4 full, and i think i was more like 11-12 when i started it. the first entry was "lothar and the hand people".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05am coelacanth:

did you ever keep one?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10am sinister dexter:

loving the sounds! yes!
  2:11am rw:

I remember starting a list of band names in Jr. High. It got fairly long but I don't remember how long. I lost interest once I started doing stuff like getting band names from the dividers at the record store. It was more fun when it was all from memory.
  2:12am rw:

Coincidentally the first band name was Lothar and the Hand People!
  2:14am rw:

Okay. That's a lie. I don't remember the first band name. Maybe Blue Oyster Cult. Or Pink Floyd. Something like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15am coelacanth:

hahaha! i was just about to ask if you were shitting me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17am coelacanth:

...ironically....after all these decades and thousands of records, i still couldn't tell you what lothar and the hand people sound like!
  2:19am rw:

They had a theramin. That's where the Hand People come in. I think they were sort of psych folk pop but I'm not totally sure.
  2:23am rw:

Actually, I think maybe Lothar is the name of their theremin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23am coelacanth:

the purpose of the notebooks was so i could seek out the music eventually...i guess i should find lothar and the hand people music before i die!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26am coelacanth:

yes, lothar was the theramin, according to wikipedia.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27am coelacanth:

i'm moving soon. maybe i'll come across those notebooks. 'should be amusing.
  2:28am rw:

My dad had a compilation LP with a Lothar and the Hand People track on it when I was a little kid. I remember being intrigued in part because of their name. I think I've got a CD re-release somewhere too. My memory is that the CD is a little uneven but probably worth checking out.
  2:29am rw:

Moving sounds awesome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36am coelacanth:

yeh, it's kinda weird that i never forgot that band name yet never familiarized myself with their music. none of their song titles are ringing a bell though, and i know i wrote a song down. (because i always did)
...now i really want to find the (earlier) notebook.
  2:41am rw:

It's a pretty memorable band name. I wonder if it was on my list in Jr. High. I'll bet it was. Just not likely first. Pretty sure Alice Coltrane was not on my list unfortunately.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44am coelacanth:

...along with my later notebook, once wfmu started archiving programs, i kept one with whole episodes listed - each of many djs having his/her own page(s)...just in case i one day got a computer!
  2:45am rw:

Good luck finding the notebooks! I'm sure it would be fun to revisit!

And I'm out. Good night! Thanks Jesse! Have a good week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45am coelacanth:

good night rw.
  2:45am rw:

Ha! Sort of psych folk pop!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46am coelacanth:

haha! there it is! Thanks Jesse!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48am coelacanth:

i like it! i'm sure much of what i wrote down when i was 12 i wouldn't like now; but yeah it is good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57am coelacanth:

Thanks Jesse. have a great week!
